Trials and Tribulations of the World Today – A Vent.

Lately I’ve been getting more agitated about things that I normally do. I’m trying to figure out why. I’m wondering if people are becoming more ignorant, inconsiderate, stupid and just plain jerks? Am I becoming more centative to things as I’m getting older? Is COVID19 making us more selfcaware, yet less aware of those around us? Could the pandemic just be putting everyone on edge a little more that before?

I don’t know. Maybe when the world gets past this we might be able to figure it out

So… from here on, it is just to vent about what I’ve been dealing with personally.

  • People not wearing masks properly, especially retail staff
  • People not abiding my arrows of the floor.
  • The expectation that because we are strangers, but both wearing masks that we do not have to social distance.
  • Being thwarted when attempting to social distance – people have cut me off when I’ve left 6feet between myself & the person in front of me.
  • Stupid drivers.. I can’t count the number of accidents I’ve nearly had because of other drivers, like pulling out too far at a stop sign, or like pulling a rolling stop at an All-Way & taking your left turn despite the person opposite you at an appropriate stop who is coming straight through or going 140 in a 90 zone (km not miles)
  • People just being oblivious to those around them and not being able to social distance around them.
  • Snarky “It’s a hoax” people. People can have their opinion & voice it without being total idiots about it.
  • People still not wearing masks.
  • Not having a contactless payment system. Not all stores have Tao yet. I have to sanitize my card every time it goes into a reader.
  • People not realizing or not caring that their actions have consequences, not just to themselves but others.. Especially those at higher risk like the ill & the elderly.

Keep an eye out for my next topic – what I’m grateful for..
